LIZZY YARNOLD FOURTH ON SKELETON RETURN IN WORLD CUP OPENER

Olympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold finished fourth on her return to competition after more than 18 months out at the World Cup opener in Canada.

The Briton, 28, missed out on bronze by one hundredth of a second to world champion Tina Hermann, with Elisabeth Vathje of Canada claiming gold.

Yarnold has been on an extended break and last competed when winning gold at the World Championships in March 2015.

Fellow Briton Laura Deas finished in a tie for sixth at the event in Whistler.

“I wasn’t sure how I’d get on in Whistler after mid-field training times,” said Yarnold, who won Olympic gold at Sochi 2014
